I have had an amazing week and I’m immensely thankful for so many things!
It’s been such a long time since I truly felt valued between job loss, non-supportive people, and false friends.
This week, I received a letter from school saying I had made the Dean’s Honour List for last semester.
I have some potential job leads too, but that’s not all!
I got a bursary and might be getting another one. My insurance company reimbursed me for a payment. I also got a couple dollars in royalties!
I worked on the set for Blind at 17, a TV movie, last weekend and met some really wonderful people. It was my first time on a set! I briefly got to talk to one of the actors, who I was in a high school production of Jesus Christ Superstar with 21 years ago.
Now, some of this is stuff I’ve worked hard for like the Dean’s List. I’ve worked hard on my projects all year, even during the strike.
I applied for bursaries last semester and was rejected, but this semester they say I’m a candidate for some. I applied again this semester and I don’t know the rhyme or reason of why I was selected, but I’m really thankful because it made it a lot easier to pay for the school trip!
We did a career plan earlier this semester. One of the things on my list was keeping my grades up. Check. I have some other things I’ve been working hard on like getting a part-time job, so I’m hoping something happens there soon, but I’m so thankful things are starting to fall in place a bit as it’s been pretty hard for the last couple of years. Actually, it’s been pretty hard since about 2009.
I’m not going into all that, but suffice it to say that I’ve been waiting a really long time to have a really good week.
And that’s how life’s river flows today!
